What is General Dentistry?

Everyone thinks about the dentist when they have a toothache or suffer from an injury that cracks a tooth, but emergency dental treatment is only a small part of good oral health. Keeping your teeth and mouth healthy requires regular dental visits, and what is known as general dentistry. General dentistry, in most cases, focusing on monitoring your teeth and gums, catching potential concerns before they require treatment, and helping to keep your teeth, gums and mouth as healthy as possible.

The American Dental Association recommends that everyone should see the dentist at least twice a year for regular exams, with x-rays occurring at least once a year. In addition, they recommend teeth cleanings every six months in order to help remove plaque and reduce the risk of cavity formation.

At New Leaf Rohnert Park, we offer a wide range of general dentistry services that focus on promoting good oral health and a beautiful smile. Listed below are some of our many services offered to help you achieve and maintain a healthy smile.

Exams

Routine dental exams are an essential part of a good oral hygiene routine. These exams allow your dentist to detect any potential concerns that are developing and create a conservative treatment plan to stop any progression. When cavities or other problems are discovered, your dentist can treat them immediately, reducing your risk of potential tooth loss.

Cleanings

While you brush and floss your teeth every day, a professional dental cleaning can reach areas you can’t at home. These cleanings allow the hygienist to remove potential tartar build-up on the surface and in hard-to-reach areas between the teeth, helping to reduce your risk of developing cavities or gum disease.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Oral cancer is highly treatable when diagnosed early. Including regular cancer screenings with our routine dental exams helps to catch any early signs, allowing you to seek treatment before you are at high risk of complications.

Root Canals

If a cavity goes untreated for too long, it can penetrate the nerve and tooth root, leading to pain and sensitivity. Root canal treatment helps to eliminate the pain while still saving the natural tooth.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder can cause jaw pain, headaches and problems opening the mouth. Your general dentist can help diagnose as well as treat TMJ. In some cases, they may recommend custom dental appliances and therapy options, or they may need to refer you to orthodontic specialists.

Mouth Guards

Sports account for numerous dental injuries every year. While mouth guards are available over the counter, they do not fit and conform to your teeth as well, reducing their protection. A custom-fit mouth guard allows you to feel confident that your teeth are protected.

Night Guards

Do you grind your teeth at night? Bruxism, or teeth grinding, contributes to an increased risk of cavities and other dental concerns. Being fitted for a night guard helps protect your teeth and improves your overall oral health.

Sleep Apnea

While sleep specialists are often where people turn with sleep apnea, your general dentist can also help treat sleep apnea and other sleep-disordered breathing issues. This can include special snoring and sleep apnea oral appliances and therapy.
